Blue Springs Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Find the right Wrongful Termination attorney in Blue Springs, MO

Most employment in Missouri considered to be "at-will". This means that either the employer or employee can terminate the employment at any given moment, and for any reason. In "at will" employment, the only general exception is that the reasons for termination must not be illegal or in violation of the law.

Employment arrangements that do not qualify as "at will" are not subject to the same limitations and restrictions, so it is crucial that you know how your work setup is classified. Usually, if your employment arrangement was for a set term, it is not "at will", and the employment can only be terminated according to procedure contained in the contract.

What are the Illegal Grounds for Terminating At Will Employment in Missouri?

Regarding terminating a Missouri employee, discrimination is the most common illegal reason. An employer may not fire an employee just because they are of a specific race, religion, gender, or nationality. Blue Springs employers are further prohibited from firing at-will employees in order to retaliate against them for filing a legal discrimination claim or initiating an investigation of discrimination.

Additionally, the Family and Medical leave act prohibits employers from firing employees for having taken leave for family or medical reasons. Lastly, employees are protected from being fired by their employer for performing a legal obligation, exercising their legal rights, or for refusing to participate in an illegal act.

Life in Blue Springs

Blue Springs is a Jackson County city that is just outside of Kansas City in the State of Missouri. The city is home to 55,000 residents including celebrities like David Cook from American Idol, rapper Tech N9NE, pro wrestler Ricky Vega, and football player Doug Terry. Blue Springs is popular among families and business professionals because it plays host to many award-winning schools and is an attractive residential community for commuters. Notably, a number of lawyers call Blue Springs home. Those lawyers specialize in a wide range of practice areas and daily take new cases. There are also a number of picturesque parks and free recreational activities.  

Blue Springs was founded by settlers traveling westward who utilized the clean spring water from Little Blue River. The river played an important role in the development of Blue River and powered the Burrus Old Mill, a grist mill, which can still be visited at the city's Burrus Old Mill Park on Woods Chapel Road. When the Chicago and Alton Railroads announced they were constructing a station 1 mile east of the mill in 1878, the city's center relocated to attract more commerce.
